"The demons of war are persistent" [Tormented by PTSD—after four decades of denial.]
To help Veterans and Families break the stigma of PTSD, and seek assistance before a life of loneliness, destitution, or the ultimate warrior defeat - Suicide! “The Demons of War are Persistent” A Personal Story of Prolonged PTSD —A.W. Schade, USMC 1965/69 Forty years have passed since my deployment as a combat Marine to Vietnam. However, only several years since I acknowledged my inability to continue suppressing the demons alone. Like many veterans, the “Demons” have haunted me through nightmares, altered personas and hidden fears… Even as many veterans manage the demons’ onslaught successfully, millions survive in destitution, needless solitude and social disconnection. Scores consider themselves cowards, should they concede to the demons’ hold. Countless live in denial and loneliness, protecting their warrior’s pride. The most vulnerable— tormented by guilt and feeling forever alone — too often choose to “end” their lives. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/awschade/support
